Actually Jesus himself doesn’t say much in the first place. Othe folks speak for him, 2nd and 3rd hand. Which makes sense, since he is mythical. Maybe you should think about how fast you call others morons, as doing so says more about you than them.
Right on George! Jesus is a myth just like Horus! I was just looking at the similarities between Jesus and Horus and it BLOWS YOUR MIN!
Here is an amazing book that has gotten 4.5/5 stars on Amazon where even a prominent archaeologist has prasied it! People cannot deny the amazing similarities between Horus and the mythical Jesus!
The Sun-god Horus was worshipped nearly 1,000 years before the story of Jesus. Now check these parallels:
1.Both were conceived of a virgin.
2.Both were the “only begotten son” of a god (either Osiris or Yahweh)
3.Horus’s mother was Meri, Jesus’s mother was Mary.
4.Horus’s foster father was called Jo-Seph, and Jesus’s foster father was Joseph.
5.Both foster fathers were of royal descent.
6.Both were born in a cave (although sometimes Jesus is said to have been born in a stable).
7.Both had their coming announced to their mother by an angel.
Horus; birth was heralded by the star Sirius (the morning star). Jesus had his birth heralded by a star in the East (the sun rises in the East).
8.Ancient Egyptians celebrated the birth of Horus on December 21 (the Winter Solstice). Modern Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25.
9.Both births were announced by angels (this si nto the same as number 7).
10.Both had shepherds witnessing the birth.
11.Horus was visited at birth by “three solar deities” and Jesus was visited by “three wise men”.
12.After the birth of Horus, Herut tried to have Horus murdered. After the birth of Jesus, Herod tried to have Jesus murdered.
13.To hide from Herut, the god That tells Isis, “Come, thou goddess Isis, hide thyself with thy child.” To hide from Herod, an angel tells Joseph to “arise and take the young child and his mother and flee into Egypt.”
14.When Horus came of age, he had a special ritual where hsi eye was restored. When Jesus (and other Jews) come of age, they have a special ritual called a Bar Mitzvah.
15.Both Horus and Jesus were 12 at this coming-of-age ritual. Neither have any official recorded life histories between the ages of 12 and 30.
16.Both have 12 disciples.
17.Both walked on water, cast out demons, healed the sick, and restored sight to the blind
My name is Ken Feder. I am an archaeologist, and I play one on TV, as a talking head in various documentaries on the National Geographic Channel, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, ScFi, BBC Horizon, and, as it turns out, even the Weather Channel. Having conducted research and written extensively over the course of the last thirty years, I think I have developed a good eye for recognizing valuable research that is worthy of serious consideration when I see it. And the research conducted by D.M. Murdock concerning the myth of Jesus Christ is certainly both valuable and worthy of consideration.
Everyone who reads Murdock’s Christ in Egypt should understand that the sources she cites are anything but marginal or questionable. In fact, her sources are, at least as far as I can tell, entirely within the Egyptology mainstream and many are, in fact, revered, and deservedly so, within the community of Egyptologists. The fact that these sources are mainstream, highly respected, or even seminal does not, of course, make them right about the origins of the Christ story. However, it does make them, and Murdock’s thesis in which she incorporates their work, impossible to dismiss out of hand.
Read her book. Criticize it if you believe it deserves criticism. But to dismiss it or get apoplectic about her thesis simply because it shocks you is plainly foolish.—Kenneth L. Feder, PhD, Frauds, Myths and Mysteries
